About This Book

The baby boomers have come of age - the first cohort born in 1946 is now 65 years old. The pervasive themes in this book are mental resilience, the ethical mind and life satisfaction. What factors influenced and determined the lives of 40 young lads from a small Malaysian town who were from the same school in 1964? Their experiences and life stories are juxtaposed with another group of baby boomers in Singapore. This book is, in essence, a quantitative and qualitative study of their collective experiences. There are many books on gerontology in the libraries and bookshops, but they are all written from the British or American perspective. Ageing Baby Boomers is written from an Asian perspective, viewed through the lens of time by a doctor who has lived and worked on both sides of the Causeway. Professor Kua Ee-Heok hopes it will ignite interest, like the yeast for the unleavened bread; its effervescence will give rise to new ideas in addressing the most pressing issue of the age - the ageing of the baby boomers.
